Beladonna (artist name) is a talented artist and graphic designer whose passion for art drives her to create and innovate in all areas of handmade. As a crafter, she is recognized on Etsy as the creator of MyKokeshi, her very own modern adaptation of the traditional Japanese art known as Kokeshi (hand carved from wood).
Following the teachings of her grandmother, Anabela (artist) learned that flaws sometimes constitute the beauty and uniqueness within the art. With much trial and error, she embraced the art of crochet, applied the basics passed down from her grandmother, and began creating new original patterns and amigurumis.
As she perfected her art, she created Beluchis, a collection of handmade neckwarmers and more.
The Other half
Anabela receives help and support in all her endeavors from her other half, Gilles Clément, Also known as GC. Gilles is the web guy, the business guy, the guinea pig, (in this case, the model), and more often than not, the devil’s advocate.
They say crafters and artists have minds of their own. It’s not different for Anabela, as she leaves a piece of her mind everywhere, and with everything she creates.
